On the Children @ Church page, Georgina has prepared newsletters which can be downloaded.

St Margaret's Church is open for services as follows:

Thursdays            10.00 am to 11.00 am

Sundays               11.00 am to 12.00 noon.

If you wish to attend the church for private prayer at another time, then please contact the Parish Office  on email or leave a voicemail on 0121 357 1390 to arrange so that somebody can let you in.

As from 10 December 2021, new Government restrictions under “Plan B” mean it is now a legal requirement for people to wear face masks in church (unless a person has a legal exemption).  Singing is still allowed.

“Track & Trace” is still in operation here, either through the QR code poster or by people giving us their names and contact number.  Hand sanitiser is still available and we would remind people to continue social distancing in church with some pews remaining roped off.  The church will continue to be cleaned down after services.   

 As from 19 July 2021, Government legal restrictions may have been lifted, but we would appreciate people continuing to wear face masks in church in order to reassure other people who are vulnerable or nervous

Hand sanitiser will continue to be available and we will continue social distancing in church with some pews still roped off.  Any changes will be introduced slowly so that people know what is happening.  The church will continue to be cleaned down after any services.

The church is now hoping to catch up on Baptisms and other events that had to be postponed due to Covid.

Donations to St Margaret's Church

There a now new way to donate to St Margaret's Church using "Donate Now" set up by the Diocese of Lichfield to help their churches.  Their Finance Team, with help from a local software company, Data Developments, have put a Donate Now button on the Diocese website.

If you would like to make a donation to St Margaret’s Church, then click on the link to the Donate Now page, after you have clicked the button, you can enter your details and can choose St Margaret’s from the drop-down list of churches. 

In addition, there is a Gift Aid option as well as an option for donors to cover the transaction cost if they want to.  As is the case with Contactless and Giving Direct, funds go into the Diocesan bank account as the registered charity and are then passed on to St Margaret’s as soon as possible along with a report showing when the donations were made. 

Many Thanks
